Travis aerial porters exercise
U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Zakaree Simanton, 729th Airlift Squadron loadmaster, ensures the safe load-up of a simulated ambulance onto a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft Aug. 1, 2019, at Travis Air Force Base, California. Due to the angle of the C-17’s loading ramp, blocks must be added to the ramp to prevent the vehicle from scraping its undercarriage against the ground during the load-up. Such calculations must be precise with the margin of error being within mere inches. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Christian Conrad)
